I absolutely love terracing! Terraces, a long standing tradition throughout many cultures, can still be seen from the past and are being implemented once more for their multi-function approach to landscape productivity and regeneration. They create access, help to slow water, retain and help build soil, and give productive space for production of crops of all sorts including animal integration. They follow the curves of nature and are quite aesthetically beautiful when done with craftsmanship.

Trained as both a Permaculture Designer and Fish and Wildlife Manager, Doug Doug Crouch in his beloved paw paw groves has extensive knowledge surrounding landscape planning and food production systems. This regenerative design and implementation work spans the globe ranging in contexts and climates including tropical agro-forestry, Mediterranean organic gardening, and temperate suburban edible landscaping. To facilitate this work he founded TreeYo Permaculture thus building off his other formal training in small business management. Incorporating this knowledge and experience into sustainability educational programming has now become Doug’s main focus as he continues his ecological design and holistic development at Treasure Lake.
